Barack Obama, our next President

"Pact, Approved in Iraq, Sets Time for U.S. Pullout"
Published: November 16, 2008

""BAGHDAD — Iraq’s cabinet on Sunday overwhelmingly approved a proposed security agreement that calls for a full withdrawal of American forces from the country by the end of 2011. The cabinet’s decision brings a final date for the departure of American troops a significant step closer after more than five and a half years of war.""

""The proposed agreement, which took nearly a year to negotiate with the United States, not only sets a date for American troop withdrawal, but puts new restrictions on American combat operations in Iraq starting Jan. 1 and requires an American military pullback from urban areas by June 30. Those hard dates reflect a significant concession by the departing Bush administration, which had been publicly averse to timetables.

Iraq also obtained a significant degree of jurisdiction in some cases over serious crimes committed by Americans who are off duty and not on bases.

In Washington, the White House welcomed the vote as “an important and positive step” and attributed the agreement itself to security improvements in the past year."

=---------

Your boy GW Bush the Coward, signed an agreement dictating the removal of American Combat Forces by year end 2011.

Obama merely met the conditions Bush had agreed to.

You apparently enjoy making a ram's ass of yourself.

You're very good at it. Bet you never got past Jr. High!!

As for the oil;

""During a round table discussion on “the Fight for Oil, Water and a Healthy Planet” at Stanford University on Saturday, Gen. John Abizaid (Ret.), the former CENTCOM Commander, said that “of course” the Iraq war is “about oil“:
“Of course it’s about oil, we can’t really deny that,” Abizaid said of the Iraq campaign early on in the talk.
“We’ve treated the Arab world as a collection of big gas stations,” the retired general said.“Our message to them is: Guys, keep your pumps open, prices low, be nice to the Israelis and you can do whatever you want out back. Osama and 9/11 is the distilled essence that represents everything going on out back.”
Abizaid has previously argued that the U.S. would need “to keep a long-term military presence in Iraq” in order to protect “the free flow of goods and resources” such as oil, but his Stanford comments go much further in pinning oil as a prime motivator for the war.""

You lose on all fronts, ramhead!!

I am curious though. Which Bush are you talking about, the one who was able to manipulate most of the free world, not to mention the Democratic congressional heavy hitters, about the necessity for invasion or the Bush that, while over there ostensibly for oil, neglected to grab a barrel or two?

Actually, yes.

Blacks are on welfare at about three times their percentage in society, while whites are on welfare at 50% of their percentage in society.

Galt is having second thoughts.

Galt has been convinced for a while that Nucularshit was a sockpuppet for Demos/Tenzing, kind of Mr. Hyde to Dr. Jekyll.

Galt has become convinced that Demos/Tenzing could not possibly be that stupid if he tried.

Galt apologizes to Demos/Tenzing.

Well, to be axiomatic, America's plan to disarm President Obama probably won't work either. Especially if they're going to buy 3.5 cent a round ammunition. I'm thinking they should fire off a few rounds to make sure the papier mache' doesn't clog the barrel?

Why does a Democrat need an AR-15? Joe Biden told you only need to take a shotgun outside at fire a couple rounds off towards the sky!

Also - the very lowest you will find .223 rounds is at 40 cents and you just saud "hubby" found them at $19.00 for 500 rounds. That would be .036 cents a round.

You could actually get good ones at .026 a round before you libtards started ranting for gun control.

Get your math straight, libtard.

Like I said, it would have only passed by 7 votes in the House had all Democrats voted nay.

It doesn't matter.

Your crude attempts to shift the blame away from Bush just don't carry water.

----------

""However, when words are used in ways that manipulate public fear, facts and rationality are beside the point. The aim of the corruption of language -- whether conscious or unconscious -- is to confuse rather than clarify, and to cause the listener to believe an illusion rather than the truth.

In his article, "Fallacies and War," Dave Koehler points out misleading public arguments the administration uses to justify war. For example, the Bush team often presents the false dilemma -- claiming there are only two possible options when, in fact, more choices are available.

Kohler refers to the statement Bush issued right after 9/11: "You're either with us or with the terrorists." As Kohler says "Countries can be both against terrorism and not an ally of the U.S ... Many countries are showing they are both against a preemptive war and against the current Iraqi regime." Bush said the U.N. must vote for war or face irrelevance. As Kohler points out, the U.N. can simultaneously survive and disagree with Bush.

The Bush team also repeatedly uses the fallacy of exclusion, meaning they leave out important aspects of any given argument. For example, Colin Powell and George Bush spoke about aluminum tubes being used for uranium enrichment for nuclear weapons use. Kohler notes they failed to take into account the essential fact that U.N. inspectors said the tubes were conventional rocket artillery casings.

Kohler points to another fallacy, argument from ignorance -- the claim that what hasn't been disproved must be true. The Bush administration implies Iraq must have weapons of mass destruction because of Iraq's failure to prove it doesn't. As Kohler says, the burden of proof is on the party making the claim, therefore the U.S. "must prove that Iraq has WMD. It is impossible for Iraq to prove they don't."

In his article, "An Orwellian Pitch," John R. McArthur, publisher of Harper's Magazine, writes about the Bush team's manipulation of public opinion. He says, "Effective propaganda relies on half-truths and the conflation of disparate 'facts'(like Saddam's genuine human rights violations)." McArthur says the Bush team has managed to get away with this deceptive fact twisting because they use a tactic George Orwell described as "slovenliness" in the language.

Congressman Henry Waxman said the Bush administration likely hoodwinked members of Congress. According to a March 25 Mother Jones article, Waxman said he voted to give Bush authority to invade Iraq in large part because he believed the administration's claims about Iraq's effort to purchase nuclear weapons.""

----------

It will go down in history as Bush's Debacle.

You think he didn't get invited to any Republican Conventions for nothing??vThe Repugnant Party has abandoned GW Bush.

Even most Repugnants hate Bush.

You're one of the few that is dumb enough to continue your idiotic support of him.
